LOL..so not funny but I thought it was only my little one was like that. He is 18 months old, and eats EVERYTHING made out of paper, I used to think something was wrong with him,but he is perfectly ok, I guess its just a phase. I know it is so gross, but he used to take toilet paper and dip it in the toilet and eat it. I was so scared for his health, luckily he is okay, and doesnt do that anymore, he still loves paper tho.

Have his iron checked. Sounds like he might have low iron or an iron deficency. Google it, seriously.

If not he may just like to eat paper.

DS loves paper and his foam alphabet puzzle lol.  Oh, and markers - thankfully they're non toxic.  SS decided to eat dirt all the time and one time ended up eating dog poo LMAO it was soooooooo gross and he freaked out!!!
